Francisco Realpe, a 45-year-old from Hoboken, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting two female students while employed as a teacher in Union City and Jersey City, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez has announced.

Realpe pleaded guilty to two counts of Sexual Assault before Judge Carlo Abad on Thursday, June 30.

As conditions of the plea, Realpe will be subject to Megan’s Law and Parole Supervision for Life. He will forfeit his right to current and future public employment and permanent restraining orders will be in place for both victims.

Realpe is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday, September 30. The State is represented in this case by Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Jane Weiner.

The first victim report being sexually assaulted in November 2019 while Realpe was a teacher at Dickinson High School in Jersey City. Shortly after Realpe’s arrest, the second victim reported being sexually assaulted in 2004 while a student at Union Hill High School in Union City. Both victims were 17 at the time of the assaults.

Realpe also faces two lawsuits also alleging sexual assaults of underage female students while working at Union Hill High School, which is now better known as Union City High.
